About the hostel

Looking for a fun, friendly, comfortable, easy-going, historic place to stay in central Edinburgh that caters for backpackers, students and fellow world explorers? You found us!

High Street Hostel can provide all you need for a great time in this beautiful city. Open year-round, we offer a gentle vibe with great facilities.

Our comfortable lounges offer plenty of room to relax, make new friends and share stories with fellow travellers…
They are also filled with lots of cool stuff, like knights armours. So sit back, soak in the atmosphere, reflect on your adventures, enjoy a book, challenge friends to a game of chess, give our piano a go or meet new people…

There are plenty of things going on in our hostel… Feel free to participate in our weekly events, such as burger night, movie night, our pub crawl and pool tournament. Oh and by the way, if you want to catch up with friends and family back home, we also have free WiFi.

Hungry? Prepare and store food in our self-catered kitchen… Whether you want to prepare authentic food with newfound friends or just put a pizza in the oven because you can’t be bothered, our kitchen has you covered. We also offer continental breakfast for only £1.90 in case you wake up in the morning and realise that you ran out of food…

Our bedrooms are nice and comfortable and come equipped with lockers to store personal items safely, as well as power sockets to charge your gadgets and watch a movie in bed, even when your laptop is out of battery…

Our bathrooms are clean and equipped with powerful, hot showers… Hairdryers are provided for free. Don’t have a towel? No problem, hire one for only 50p…

There’s even a patio where you can enjoy the sun… Alright, don’t nail us on that one. You’ve probably heard that the Scottish weather is a little moody. Fact is though that BBQs and beers with friends are always fun…
